In the State of Virginia, wrongful death occurs when the life of an individual is taken due to the willful or negligent act of another person or persons. Wrongful death claims differ from personal injury claims because the victim is unable to bring the action themselves. The state of Virginia allows a personal representative of the victims surviving family members and estate to file a wrongful death lawsuit to hold someone responsible and seek damages for the harm their careless or reckless conduct caused.
